Thanaka has become one of the traditional beauty secrets in Myanmar. It comes from the Thanaka tree that is made from hard wood with a yellowish color and gives off a distinct pleasant odor. For centuries, the Thanaka tree offers the Myanmar women their beauty secrets. The tree’s extracts are known for their nourishing and hydrating components and whitening compositions.
Dermatologists are becoming highly interested in thanaka for its whitening and cooling effect to the skin which gives Myanmar women their remarkable smooth and white skin.
Skin care benefits of Thanaka
Aside from the lightening benefits of thanaka, cosmetic producers are also taking advantage of its anti-bacterial effects and use it as an ingredient in fighting acne and as an anti-blemish beauty product. Tannic acids are also found in the tree which is responsible for tightening the skin to prevent sagging and it also protects the skin against the harmful UV rays from the sun that can cause skin darkening. It also provides a cooling sensation on the skin which is perfect for relaxing a tired facial skin that has been exposed to the various environmental radicals that can accelerate the aging process. The thanaka whitening powder provides several skin care benefits that are suited for both men and women and it is also safe to use in children.

Ayurveda gives you an option to find a permanent solution to the problem of hair removal.
There are various other home remedies for hair removal but they all are temporary.
Even if you are waxing at home or using a razor, it is not possible for you to remove body hair every week.
That is where Ayurvedic hair removal gains advantage. Being natural is not the only USP of this procedure.
It is also permanent. However, like all other Ayurvedic treatments, this one too requires perseverance.
The only other method of permanent hair removal is laser treatment. But compared to laser treatment,
Ayurvedic hair removal using ubtans (medicinal pastes) is a safer and natural method.
If you want to try Ayurvedic hair removal, then these are the ingredients you require.
